Commodore Format Power Packs

Group Description

Commodore Format Power Packs were cassettes found on the cover of the Commodore 64 magazine Commodore Format which contained various games, demos and utilities every month.

Commodore Format was a UK computer magazine dedicated solely to the Commodore 64 and was launched in October 1990 by Future Publishing. With Commodore User no longer on the shelves at the start of the 90s and Your Commodore declining in sales, this just left Zzap! to dominate the market but Future Publishing felt there was still life in the Commodore 64 and its software to become serious competition to Zzap!. Although mainly a magazine dedicated to the gaming side of the C64 like Zzap!, there was still other articles and features based on hardware and uses other than games for the machine.

In January 1993, Commodore Format was the best selling monthly Commodore 64 magazine and to become more competitive, Zzap! had a complete redesign and a new name, becoming Commodore Force. Commodore Force lasted 16 issues and became no more in March 1994 with the decline of the Commodore 64 scene but Commodore Format still kept going but as sales fell it became more of a specialist hobby magazine and finally with all major publishing companies stopping making C64 games the magazine finally closed with issue 61 in October 1995.

The following people were editors of the magazine:

  • Steve Jarratt: Issue 1 - 14 (Oct 90 - Nov 91)
  • Colin Campbell: Issue 15 - 17 (Dec 91 - Feb 92)
  • Trenton Webb: Issue 18 - 35(Mar 92 - Aug 93)
  • Andy Hutchinson: Issue 36 - 43 (Sep 93 - Apr 94)
